UK Today News: American pop star Beyonce is reported to be officially a part of Glastonbury Festival 2011. After the rumours of her joining U2 and Coldplay as event headliners, a press release had announced her presence in the British open-air festival.
“This really is the biggest festival in the world and I cannot wait to perform there. Everyone who attends is really appreciative of music and is in such a good mood that entire weekend,” the singer said. The press release came from her label Columbia, instead of the Glastonbury head quarters.
It was not clear if the announcement was made with the permission of the organizers of the event. Not much was known about the event as the organizer Michael Eavis preferred to maintain secrecy with the festival program.
The tickets of the festival had sold out within hours after the tickets went on sale. According to sources, the Libertines have also been called to headline the Other Stage.
